Dwayne Bowe, Brandon Carr Are The Chiefs 'First Priority'

We have a priority list on the Kansas City Chiefs free agency.

But it shouldn't surprise you. Not at all.

Romeo Crennel's interview with Soren Petro of 810 WHB was full of good stuff including the part where he said Dwayne Bowe and Brandon Carr -- both impending free agents -- are the "first priority".

"Those guys have done a good job for us," Crennel said. "We would like to keep those guys in house. We know the free agency process is a difficult thing at times." GM Scott Pioli has said the same thing -- that he wants to keep both of them. So we've established that the Chiefs will make an effort to keep both.

"Hopefully they will want to stay and we're going to do everything we can to keep him," Crennel continued. "You just never know. But they are the first priority."

That shouldn't be a surprise. No offense to the rest of the Chiefs free-agents-to-be but Bowe and Carr are clearly the most important ones.

As for another Chiefs free agent, Crennel indicated that he would like to keep Kyle Orton as well. "He did a great job the three games we had him as the starter. He won two out of three. Not bad."

Whether that actually happens is another story.
